our new abode

it's been a really exciting week on the home front, literally. as you know, jared was out of town for 10 days over the past couple of weeks. i worked a lot while he was gone and then spent my evenings driving the neighborhoods of salt lake from bountiful to lehi. yea, not fun but i got a great feel for all of the communities and checked out the real estate. i was open to pretty much anything since we've been "looking" for about a lifetime now.

last weekend we found a new, modern townhouse in salt lake proper where we will be moving in mid-september. it makes me want to jump and shout for two reasons: 1 - a new place means new decorating and new space to fill, and 2 - i will be 8 miles from my office and won't be driving 2 hours a day. hooray!

it has 3 beds, 3 baths, windows galore, a 2-car garage, and a trax station 100 yards from the front door. bring on the painted walls and bbqs!




*colors are a little off and there are a few slight differences, but i had to give you the idea.

YAAAY Congratulations! That is so exciting- we can't wait to see it! Horray for decorating- you will probably need to visit Taipan asap.

OH MY HECK! I love it!! I can't wait to see it! We are neighbors, kinda! So happy you guys found it!

Are you kidding me?!?!! It's GORGEOUS!!!! Congratulations!! It's already stunning--I can't wait to see it after you've decorated. You have great taste. As for failing CPA exams, I should probably remove that statement from my blog. I was sure I failed FAR when I took it back in July. But I just got my score back and totally passed! Words cannot expressed how I feel about that, but let's just say I could have been hit by a train the day I found out and STILL been smiling the whole way to the hospital.

That's so exciting and sad all at the same time! I don't want you to go! But I do want to see your new place in person. Maybe we'll invite ourselves over once you get settled. = )

And we need to play before you go!

Candace said...

Roast!!! Of course I recognized the nickname... it's Waverly Station by Hamlett Homes. Where are you these days? You know we would love a good neighbor. Take care.

We totally looked there! I liked it a lot (especially the part about the Trax), but ended up finding something we liked better up in North Salt Lake (no trax :-( ). We are just waiting to see if the loan all goes through.
